Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of Spain's most important dramatists of the twentieth century and winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1922, Jacinto Benavente y Martinez wrote more than 170 plays in his lifetime—most of which fell into four classes: social satires, psychological dramas, children's plays, and allegorical-morality plays. Los Intereses Creados falls into the first category. Premiering in late 1907, it was instantly acclaimed throughout Europe. The play, which resembles a puppet drama, incorporates popular, traditional roles from the Italian Commedia dell'arte (the Doctor, the Captain, Harlequin, Columbine, Pantaloon, and Punchinello). Its main figure is Crispin, the spectacular puppet master who manipulates the other characters with invisible strings. Dover's edition of this sparkling satire on selfishness and greed in the modern world not only allows students of Spanish to read a brilliant playwright's masterpiece in the original, it also provides readers with an excellent English translation of a theatrical classic. Dover Original. Introduction, new English translation, and notes by Stanley Appelbaum.
